Bad Kitty is an ABC book that lists all of the gross food kitty doesn't want to eat, all of the ways he is bad to get back at his owners, all of the good food he is given, and all of the nice things he does to thank them. This book is reinforces the ABC's by including fur different ABC lists with very different content so that kids are exposed to the alphabet and words that they may not have realized started with certain letters. I like this book because it is so long and takes it's time getting through each list, not rushing through but providing a full sentence sometimes for each letter. Some of the concepts that Bad Kitty does don't always make sense to my pre-schoolers though, and I often have to explain certain vocab or actions as we read. Therefore the book is time consuming and I kno requires a lot of attention.

About This Item
From the creator of The New York Times bestseller Boing! comes the riotous story of a cat gone berserk -- four times over an in alphabetical order each time. Kitty is not happy hen she's told that her favorite foods are all gone and all that's left are Asparagus, Beets, Cauliflower, Dill...and 22 other equally unappealing vegetables. So she: Ate my homework, Bit grandma, Clawed the curtains, Damaged the dishes, and so on, through Z. Only when tastier things arrive (An Assortment of Anchovies, Buffalo Burritos, Chicken Cheesecake...) does she Apologize to Grandma.

What is the worst thing your kitty ever did? This bad Kitty creates all kinds of havoc when the family runs out of kitty food and they feed it healthy people food like Asparagus, Beets, Cauliflower, and Dill. This quadruple ABC book invites children to explore fun, sophisticated words in a semi-comic book format. After learning in ABC order the food Kitty did not like, Kitty took revenge when it "Ate my homework, Bit Grandma, Clawed the curtains, and Damaged the dishes." But when the family returns from the grocery store with "an Assortment of Anchovies, Buffalo Burritos, Chicken Cheesecake, and a Donkey named Dave," Kitty redeemed itself when it "Apologized to Grandma, Bought me new toys, Cleaned her Cat box, and Drove me to school." The illustrations are humorous and accompany the lyrical rhythm of the words charmingly. You can't help but fall in love with the scrawny little cat and hope that there is a sequel. Imagine if the family adopted a dog! Highly recommended for children grades pre-K - 2.

LOVED this book! I really like how the author manages to find something food-like for each letter twice! It is a really good teaching book for the alphabet and could be used as an opener to an activity where my students would draw a topic and then with each letter of the alphabet, come up with a word corresponding to their topic, just how Bruel has done in this book. Very creative!
